Coronavirus lockdown | Reopening after months, will exhibitors be able to bear the cost of restarting business?

From safety precautions, maintenance, programming to manpower, theatres will have to look at a lot of aspects before restarting and all of this will have cost implications as well

While the government is looking to let cinemas reopen in the third phase of unlocking, the question is are theatres ready?

From safety precautions, maintenance, programming to manpower, theatres will have to look at a lot of aspects before restarting and all of this will have cost implications as well.

According to Rahul Puri, MD, Mukta, A2 Cinemas, cost of operations for restarting cinemas is likely to go up somewhere between 20 percent and 35 percent considering present scenarios.

"Getting the cinemas ready for our audience will involve complete sanitization, efficient pest control and deep sanitization measures," he said.
